PAUL HAS A SUMMER JOB GN
by Michel Rabagliati
This sweet and funny coming-of-age story marks a high-water mark in great old-fashioned storytelling in graphic novels. Paul, a Montreal teenager, tastes the freedom and responsibilities of adulthood for the first time. Thanks to plummeting grades, Paul defiantly quits high school and takes a job at factory. A year later, tired and depressed, Paul accepts a strange job offer to go be a counselor at a summer camp in the mountains run by a freewheeling Catholic priest. Paul finds himself guiding a motley band of kids – misfits, loners, and troublemakers – through the rough terrain of growing up.
